Was good location and nice facility. Would have preferred more dining options and less per day "resort fee". Pool is not open after 7pm and there is no jacuzzi which would be nice on vacation. if you are a smoker, there is no good smoking section. Only dining facility is pricey, even for breakfast buffet.
This is a top notch hotel about a block off the beach, but with beach access. It is within close walking distance to scores of shops and excellent restaurants. Rooms are very clean, modern, and well maintained. Staff are friendly, courteous, and of service. Concierge staff are helpful and will give you a bag with a towel, water, and fruit for the beach. We tried the spa and it was excellent. It has a small pool, but it was not heavily used. We did not try any of the restaurants.
Nice interior and exterior, above avg service, easy access to the wakiki, easy access to abc store, and easy access if you drive in and out. Overall it was amazing. Cheapest room is better than most room in other hotels.
I upgraded my room to the ocean view and loved it. Great room, nice and clean. May be I was lucky to have one of the best rooms overlooking the beach from 19th floor. It was well worth the money. The room is small but cozy, with 2 alive orchids, every day clean up service. It was pretty nosy from the street noise, but I guess that would be true for any hotel in that area. The breakfast was included: lots of baked goods, fruits, miso soup, rice or noodles, coffee, milk and cereals. It was ok. For $7 you could have a freshly made omelet with spinach, ham and mushrooms.
Everything was great. I can't thank Veronica at concierge enough. We parasailed, jet skied, hiked, snorkeld, went on a cruise and went to paradise coves luau. We had a blast throughout our stay. The only thing I didn't like was that the adult pool was rented out for a wedding. Other than that I highly recommend this hotel we even made it to addiction night club at the modern which was really good :D
The hotel was beautiful and ideally located on Waikiki, but parking ($27 per night) and "entertainment ($30 per night, whether you used it or not) seemed a bit out of the ordinary (other takes were normal).
Waikiki established its reputation as a getaway when the Moana Surfrider opened its doors in 1901. Today, more than 30,000 hotel rooms are packed in the skyscrapers along the golden sands of Waikiki Beach. At the end of Waikiki, Diamond Head towers as an enduring landmark. West of Waikiki, Pearl Harbor offers a somber testament to history and the victims of World War II.
